hey muchomango, thanks for mentioning the crj's. i checked them out and they seem pretty cool. though, the more i've thought about it, a softer ski may come with some downsides for me personally. though i can never run them off till i try 'em.
for now though i'm definitely much more reassured with the idea of the one lifes. a stiff rocker is gonna be a great time.
also, thanks rudager for linking me to that thread! it was a great run of ideas and discussion. it definitely helped me clear out some thoughts and concerns.
plus, what you have said about the one lifes is great. i feel like i'm gonna love messing around on the mountain. now that i've gathered some perspective on them, they sound like they're gonna be perfect for me. i love riding whatever i can find in a new way. from what i know, the one lifes are light and quick, yet capable. also sounds like they might be rather nimble.
ultimately, it's what i'm gonna make with them. i can't wait to get out on the snow. just need to work on some bindings.
i know this changes topic a bit, but where do you have yours mounted. i'm thinking either on the boot line or just a bit back from there.
